Catherine "Kate" Greenaway (1846 – 1901) was an esteemed English Victorian artist and writer, known for her charming and much loved children's book illustrations. Her depictions of lovey children in imaginary 18th-century costumes in a Queen Anne style were extremely popular in England and internationally, sparking the Kate Greenaway style.
